of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true i guess it does. they have managed to bury the benghazi story. the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel any obligation to bring it up. if they put that past the election and they put this petraeus thing past the election. this second term is going to be pretty ugly people not going to go away. >> it won't be the bad guys some indication that his whatever you want to call her, his friend may have made a speech and given away some secret information that she may or may not have gotten. >> bill: only thing that could happen is if holder gets dragged into this because he may because he obviously overseas the fbi and he knew what was going on and if he see that he bury it and got fast and furious on his resume. >> you can bury certain things for only a certain amount of time. and second terms are not kind to second term presidents. i think coupled with the stagnant econom

to the united nations susan rice did not call the attack a terror strike. but republicans contend the obama administration wanted to down play terrorism from the start. >> the issue is from what was released from c.i.a. headquarters on friday afternoon in an unclassified talking point memo to the point it was changed to the sunday morning talk shows, there is a gap of about 48 hours that we need to account for and understand why it was changed. >> all the intelligence community have told us that initially they recognized there were extremists and terrorists involved, but they thought it came from a protest, that it took them time to sort that out, that there was no political spin in this. >> after the talking points memo left the c.i.a., then went to other intelligence agencies and the white house and the state department and the justice department and then to lawmakers. somewhere in there, the language was changed. rick? >> rick: molly henneberg live in washington. thank you. >> arthel: the white house now reporting that president obama will meet with congressional leaders the week after t
to that post. >> it tells you a great deal about the obama administration that the secretary of defense is a consolation prize. this would be a remarkable insult to the men and women in uniform to nominate for secretary of defense a man who made his political career trashing our military. criticizing it. who told lies about war crimes in vietnam and more recently joked about how side and uneducated our soldiers are. i don't want to hear john kerry is a combat veteran. so is benedict and nold. >> are you out of your mind? john kerry got the silver star for his service in street a number. this is not about running for president. it's about swift boating people. john kerry would be a great addition to the president's staff. i have known him since 1985 and he never mentioned he would like to be the secretary of defense. he wrote foreign relations, foreign relations, foreign relations as his three choices for committee assignment. megyn: he wouldn't bronze star and silver star. the reports were he threw hose medals over a fence in protest. a lot of veterans protested the war. but he did toni
, there was some covert action program going on in libya. i think the agency and the obama administration are trying to figure out how to deal with that. it could include some very embarrassing information related to the program. we don't know exactly what it is, it could be related to syria, it could be related to, perhaps, the militia group that carried out the benghazi attack. so these are important questions that need to be answered, and by sidelining petraeus in this way through his resignation, certainly it's going to be harder to get at those questions at least for independent investigators, say, on capitol hill. shannon: he may not testify this week as was planned, but i talked with a number of lawmakers this weekend who said they do intend, if necessary, to subpoena him, even in his roam as a private citizen -- role as a private citizen now. do you think he'll resist it or a welcome it to testify to something that maybe the investigation didn't want him to talk about publicly? >> well, the question is not so much whether he will testify, it's what he will say when he testifies an
to deliver on friday, now unburdened by the constraints of his old job, no longer a member of the obama administration, if he might be a little more free to talk about what he really knows about what happened in libya? >> i think it's a great point but know, rick, that would be even worse because it would suggest that he did sort of cave to pressure in the previous testimony. so, if he does anything to change any of it, i think that, that it becomes that much more serious. quite frankly i think it becomes sort of indefensible for the intelligence committee to protect, you know, the intelligence community from that sort of scrutiny and from making this stuff public. i just, i can not understand what the justification would be for them to not let this stuff become public just because of the soap opera angle to all of it. rick: charlie hirt, columnist with the "washington times." charlie, thanks so much. >> thanks, rick. jenna: this just in. lawmakers hearing testimony now on capitol hill trying to get to the bottom of that deadly meningitis outbreak we've been talking so much about that w
which is populated by obama administration appoint tees, is where the narrative apparently changed. greg. >> the white house came out yesterday and said, you know what, we didn't make any critical changes. we made one minor little change about the word "facility" but everything else we didn't touch. what did that? >> that's right. that word came from deputy national security advisor ben rhodes who was talk being aboard air force one. today a senator of georgia speaking on fox news sunday suggested that every intelligence community leader who has testified thus far has suggested that other changes were made. >> the hearing we had on thursday and friday, we had every leader of the intelligence community there, including folks from the state department, the fbi. everybody there was asked do you know who made these changes? and nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed the talking points that was not there was the white house. >> independent senator joe leiberman said today a watergate style committee is not needed to figure out answers to the benghazi attacks. >> the senator went on to sor
the obama administration as of today that wisconsin will throw up its hands, basically and leave that responsibility of organizing those exchanges to the federal government. his decision really not unexpected given his long opposition to this law. he stopped implementation last year on the hopes that the law would be overturned either by the u.s. supreme court or by republicans following the november election, but that was not to be, so now scott walker says that he will not take any responsibility for that. that will go back to the federal government. bill: sandy was so devastating as we know. we are learning that houses of war sheurp eve worship are struggling to help themselvesment lauren green is live. what did you find out. >> houses of worships are supposed to be sanctuaries for the broken hearted. countless are in great need of healing themselves. the repair work has done in bay head, new jersey but the road ahead is hrofpblgt the historic structure was built in the late 1800s and designed by boat builders but was never meant to withstand the urge of dirty bay water that s

said a few weeks ago that i thought that based on the evidence we had then, this was the obama administration's watergate. this gets deeper and deeper every day. there is a report by jennifer griffin and adam housley on fox news.com that miss broadwell, the mistress of general petraeus, allegedly told a group in denver that the reason that there was an attack on the c.i.a. consulate and annext was that libyan militia members were being held there. now, if that's true, that puts a lie to all it this motion about a video. >> steve: where did she find that out? >> the story also reports that some congressional members were considering charging general petraeus, head of the c.i.a., with perjury, but withholding judgment until he testified before congress this week. >> steve: i read in the "wall street journal" this morning that apparently when they approached her and they said, what's going on here, she gave hem her computer and apparently there were classified documents on her computer. but petraeus said she didn't get them from me. >> she denied it. and he denied it. but someone

? and is it a coincidence or a cover-up? the obama administration pressed on when they learned about the petraeus scandal. >> we understand how people think is bizarre, i mean, the day after the election and the anger you're hearing on capitol hill? >> brian: from democrats as well as republicans. the white house response coming up. >> steve: the most amaze video you'll see all day. a three-car crash with a three-year-old stuck inside. how that baby -- oh, my goodness -- managed to make it out alive. the good samaritan who came to the rescue. "fox & friends" hour two for wednesday starts right now. >> gretchen: good morning, everybody. so far today we've golfed with nick faldo, saw that great little girl, nine-year-old, who is playing football and running faster than everyone on the this scandal and bad news. i think people like good news. >> brian: steve has decided to make this more of a sports format. >> gretchen: that would be fine with me. >> brian: got the jefferson book out of the way. >> gretchen: let's go back to capitol hill. we're one day away from hearings there that may finally get us some a
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
the administration and with president obama. you didn't see a lot of people forming a circle around general petraeus and saying, look, he should continue in the job despite the scandal. >> the report in the journal indicates there was a lot of inner agency finger-pointing. >> that's right. over the time line that he released it, it was unexpected by other agencies. they weren't expecting him to do that. and then within the cia himself, he clashed with his own counter terrorism person over drone strikes. he wanted to align the strikes more with diplomatic efforts and the cia were after targets. and then on a smaller, but notable scale, he tends to schmooze with saw bored nets by going running with them. he would subject people come along on his athletic bouts. he runs a 6 to 7-minute mile. a few people at the cia could keep up. even these efforts by general petraeus to get to know people within the cia fell flat, and contentiousness under cut his relationships. >> and again, the "wall street journal" is reporting it sounded like general petraeus wanted to stay on. last monday he got a call from the h
to 100 republic lawmakers have written to president obama saying the administration's response to the attack makes now u.n. ambassador unfit for a promotion. it comes after word got out that the white house is considering nominating her to replace secretary of state hillary clinton. just days after the deadly attack in libya. ambassador rice went on the five sunday talk shows and described it as spontaneous protest over that video that insulted islam. u.s. officials now say it was actually a planned tear attack. the now former cia director david petraeus reportedly told congress the administration knew right away it was a terror attack. but according to those who heard the closed door testimony last week j jen petraeus claims the administration changed official story to remove references to terrorism. as to who changed it, that's unclear. lawmakers from both political parties say they are working to figure that out. some republicans point the finger at the white house accusing the administration of a coverup though at this point we have no evidence of that. the white house says
. catherine, thanks so much. yesterday president obama testified his administration's handling of the consulate attack that killed four americans. take a listen to this exchange went president and ed henry. >> i wanted to ask about the families of these four americans killed. sean smith's father ray said he believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. and i know you said you grieve for these four americans. that it's being investigated. but the families have been waiting for two months. i would like to -- for you to address the families if you can. on 9/11 as commander in chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> ed, you know, i'll address the families not through the press, i'll address the families directly as i already have. and we'll provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day. that's what the investigation is for. but as i said repeatedly, if people don't think that we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who i sent there and who were carrying out miss on behalf of
. >> talking about money down the drain. obama administration gave struggling car battery maker 1, 2, 3 systems nearly $1 million the same day it filed for bankruptcy. a company scored a 249-million-dollar grant back in 2009. and applebys is introducing some new spirited items to their menu. they include a chicken and portabella mushroom deal that uses cabernet denny glaze. pretzel with the beer cheese dip. delicious. you don't have to be 21 years or older either. the chain says the booze infused food is available to all ages. alli, it cooks off the alcohol, i do believe. no buzz included. >> i think you are right. you have a future as a waiter. >>. federal housing administration could be latest casualty that continues to limp to recovery. recent audit of the agency predicted loss of $16.3 billion at the end of 2013. for the terrorist full-time in 17 years the fha could need a bailout from taxpayers. so what does this mean for all of us? let's ask real estate expert kendra todd who joins us live from seattle. good morning, kendra. >> good morning. >> so as we just reported. the fha it was just
't find it hard to believe there are neighborhoods in the united states that president obama got 97 to 99% of the vote. the turn-out level strikes me as suspicious. philadelphia has been a administration that had irregular election procedures in the past. >> nor is philadelphia the only city where the numbers are raising eyebrows. in st. lucie county, florida, incumbent republican congressman allen west is crying foul over a limited recount of early voting that shrank the total numbers for west and his victorious democratic channeler murphy. murphy remained ahead by .57% enough to escape automatic recount of the all votes cast in three county that the district encompasses. >> i have seen there are some errors made there. at least there is reason to believe there might have been. this is a democratic county in a republican part of florida. >> weekend recount action in florida did reverse results of a mayoral race in fort pierce with a new verdict so close it triggered another recount. sunshine state automatic one. >> bret: thank you. authorities in indianapolis still don't know what caused
around in washington to replace key members of president obama's cabinet. james rosen has a closer look. >> administration officials about cabinet shuffles aimed at susan rice will face in the u.s. senate if as reported she is tapped as secretary of state. >> i think there would be an organized effort by a number of senators to make sure susan rice is not confirmed as secretary of state should the president these not to nominate her. you have to have tough questions to see susan rice failed that test. >> a hand with particular interest in genocide rice has faced sharp scrutiny when she appeared on five shows press ago narrative on the benghazi attack that has since been discounted as false. >> does the president have confidence that rice could conquer future cabinet posts? >> i will not engage in speculation about personnel matters. >> the president believes ambassador rice has done an excellent job and is grateful for her service. >> oo senator john kerry the democratic presidential nominee and foreign relations committee serving as defense secretary. the vietnam veteran who turned aga
by once again welcoming president barack obama and his administration to thailand. thailand is the first country president obama choose to visit following the election less than two weeks ago. we recognize the significance of the president and we all thank you for being here today. president obama, it is the perfect occasion to launch the celebration of 180 anniversary of thailand next year. i thank president obama and secretary clinton for actively promo promote... this afternoon i have the honor of accompanying the president for an audience with his majesty the king. the close relationship between our two countries at the highest level. lastly, at the bilateral meetings we had... discussion a partnership. thailand is the oldest ally of u.s. in asia and a long lasting one with commitment to democracy, human rights and free markets. i expressed to the president that it is my firm commitment to the people to preserve and protect the democratic system and i have shared the president's support of democracy in thailand. and democracy will lead to economic prospects. we look to the future and
and it was not terrorism. and mccain addressed obama's remarks saying he understood the president was not happy with him, but -- >> this president -- this administration has been guilty of caw loss sal incompetence or engaged in a cover up. >> meanwhile, earlier mccain was asked if there is a security threat that exceeded that of the libya attack. >> i say with great respect that is one of the dumbest questions i have ever heard. >> thank god he said it with great respect. >> you were saying in the green room mccain should move on and stop asking questions about libya. as far as they are concerned the administration has been honest up and front. i have to say that surprised me. >> i will stick to it right here. the truth of the matter is it was real schoolyard stuff. on the face of it it seems normal. that was the tone. he is protecting the woman, but it sounded condescending. it is like, why are you picking on a girl? he implied john mccain was a coward for physical picking on her when we know that john mccain is anything but a coward. obama is himself hiding behind the skirt of this woman at this time
much and where? >> well i think this is a tremendous opportunity for barack obama to lead. he chose not to do that at the start of his administration in 08. instead of focusing on the economy went right after obamacare. he is basketball player. i think he could pull the ultimate head fake and actually not raise rates on small businesses. the markets would soar. he would get a lot of goodwill. he gets the budget in place and doesn't touch tax rates on small businesses, i think his approval ratings and market goes through the roof. rick: i had thought maybe we would hear from pete where the republicans would be willing to compromise instead of where he thinks the president would be willing to come promize. but, sometime mon, that said, 47% of the american people voted for mitt romney and the points that he was making during the campaign. don't those folks have any kind of say in this? >> sure absolutely. i think, the country wants, i think as the president said, that he got a mandate for action and i think it is now going to come down to his leadership along with the house and senate
obama has a taco holder gets gas. they're together all the time. he knew, they told them. they're best friends, who wouldn't tell you that somebody in your administration is having an affair. >> maybe he was, maybe they're so close that the attorney general wanted to protect the investigation and protect president obama from knowing about it. >> that's what they want you to believe, dana. >> they want you to believe, and plausible deniability and holder is going to fall on it kind of like rice, when you're around obama, you take the hit. >> and the suggestion that the president is told about affairs in the government, that would be a long-- >> bob. >> and the other thing, when he said that it was not a threat to national security, i have absolutely no roone to disbelieve that and why in the world. >> i do, i think that they were distracted and you had a general allen sending 30,000 pages back and forth worth of e-mails and there doesn't leave a lot of time left in the day to do your job. >> i don't know how they can make the determination then, only a couple of days ago did the fbi go
